2k Seville man
12-29-07, 06:29 PM
Bought a 2000 Seville SLS in November. Prior ride was a 2001 Aurora which I absolutely loved to drive. Unfortunately a PA black bear came into my path on a dark November night, crunched the front, cracked the windshield and set off the bags. The Ins. co. totaled it much to my protest. When looking for a replacement vehicle, I researched the Seville and found that it used the same basic platform. I was looking for comfort (I drive 27 miles each way daily) and reliability. Seville was the answer. Mine is pearl white with beige interior. It has 108k and when I take anyone for a ride, there is no way they could tell the car has that many miles. I was lucky to get one with meticulous service records which sealed the deal. Oh yes, it was a bargain -- $6,000. After a month behind the wheel, I like the car better than the Aurora, and that is saying something.

I belong to Aurora Club of North America and was hoping that a similiar site for Cadillac existed. I have already found useful items and I'm sure the help will only become more valuable. I am looking at a '98 SLS this weekend. 103k for $4500. In chatting with the owner it also seems like an exceptional deal. I hope I'm right.

Thanks to everyone who submits helpful items to the site

Hopefully the crash killed the bear, so it didn't come after you...

I thought bears where smarter than deer. No bear in these parts, but I just had a close encounter of the wrong kind myself a little over a month ago. I feel your pain. :gun2: tl;dr

Welcome. Sorry bout the loss of Aurora, but at least you found something that you liked. The 98 SLS is a damn nice car, I have one of my own, just be sure to watch out for any possible head gasket issues as they are not fun to replace. Your 2000 should be safe since it has the newer Northstar, but the 98 does not.
